Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are responsible, throughout the world, for high mortality rates and cardiovascular morbidity. Endothelial dysfunction is the earliest marker of clinical atherosclerosis development. Human studies show that endothelial and microvascular dysfunction are independent predictors of ischemic cardiovascular events and long-term prognosis. The study´s objective is to evaluate the endothelial and peripheral microcirculation changes by venous occlusion plethysmography (VOP), nailfoldvideocapillaroscopy (NVC) and serum biomarkers in patients with myocardial ischemia detected by scintigraphy and normal coronarography.
The aim of our study was to investigate, whether enhancement of left atrial cryoablation by ablation of the autonomic nervous system of left atrium leads to influencing the outcomes of surgical treatment of atrial fibrillation in patients with structural heart disease undergoing open-heart surgery.
A single center cohort which enrolled women who performed mammography, bone densitometry (DEXA), and coronary CT angiography in Seoul National University Bundang Hospital from March 2011 to February 2013.
This is an analysis conducted in the Nurses Health Study and the Health Professional Follow-Up Study, both prospective cohort studies, where the investigators systematically investigated the association between carbohydrate quality using a variety of metrics in relation to coronary heart disease. This was a secondary data analysis of previously collected data in both cohorts.
The purpose of the study is to find out the differential expression profiling of microRNA before and after adiministration of dexmedetomidine in patients undergoing procedures, and then investigators will do some in vitro studies to validate the functions of the microRNA.
This study aim to evaluate whether intensive lipid lowering therapy may improve the clinical outcomes in coronary artery disease patients with in-stent neoatherosclerosis, in comparison with standard therapy.
Quantitative Flow Ratio (QFR) is a novel method for evaluating the functional significance of coronary stenosis. The purpose of the FAVOR II China study is to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of on-line QFR with FFR as the reference standard. The secondary purpose is to compare the diagnostic accuracies between online QFR and online QCA, with FFR as the reference standard.
Background: Detection of coronary artery disease (CAD) is important due to its high prevalence and its medical and economic implications. Purpose: A systematic review of the diagnostic performance of stress echocardiography (Echo), SPECT, cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR), CT Perfusion (CTP) and PET versus invasive coronary angiography (ICA) or fractional flow reserve (FFR) using hierarchical summary ROC (HSROC) methods. Data Sources: MEDLINE, EMBASE and SCOPUS for literature published in English or Spanish from January 1970 to December 2015. Study Selection: For inclusion, studies had to meet the Cochrane guidelines, had to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity methods, and use ICA and/or FFR. Only those studies with STARD methodology ≥60% were included. Data Extraction: Ten investigators extracted patient and study characteristics and 4 resolved any disagreements.
Patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) were enrolled. CAD was diagnosed by coronary angiography which also resulted Syntax score. Images of left and right ears were captured by a digital camera. Frank score of each patients was calculated based on characteristics and numbers of wrinkles of the earlobes. Statistic analysis were carried out to analyze the correlation between Frank Score and Syntax Score.
TEMA-HF 1 Long-Term Follow-up study is a follow-up study of TEMA-HF 1. It assessed the long-term impact of a 6-months telemonitoring program in chronic heart failure patients.
